Hello Altamont Families,

I hope that everyone had a wonderful and uplifting holiday season! We are happy to be back at school and looking forward to our push into spring and the end of the year! In April our students in grades 3-8 will take the annual CAASPP Test. Therefore, between now and then, we will be making a strong push to ensure our students are well prepared to demonstrate mastery of what they’ve learned throughout the year! With that, I will begin by detailing parts of that preparation process.

Assessments - As part of our preparation for the CAASSPP Test we will be administering Interim CAASPP assessments beginning this month, which are practice CAASPP tests, as well as our MAP tests. The purpose of administering these assessments is to generate specific data about student learning so that our teachers are in the strongest position possible to, most crucially, address any gaps/deficits in the learning of our students. For our students who are on or ahead of track, the goal is to accelerate their learning.  Further, this is the purpose of all assessments that are administered by our teachers.

I understand that historically there has been debate and criticism around student assessment. Some of the common debates/criticisms sound something like this; “Students are required to take too many tests, how is testing so often helpful to their learning?”, “With all of the assessments students have to take, all teachers do is teach to the test”, “All assessments do is teach students how to memorize, not how to think”. Again, the purpose of the assessments is to monitor student learning so that we can provide the best support possible to every student. Without assessment data there is no way a teacher can do their best to support the learning of their students. The highest performing schools assess students regularly, they reflect on the assessment data and they act upon this data to maximize student achievement! I am proud to say that what was stated in the previous sentence reflects our work here at Altamont!

Martin Luther King Holiday – In honor of Martin Luther King’s birthday, there will be no school this coming Monday, January 15th! We will return to school the following day, Tuesday January 16th. My favorite part of Martin Luther King’s legacy is the powerful example he set about how peaceful resistance can create meaningful change in our world! Too often we are led to believe that the best way to create meaningful change is through war and violence.

PTA – Our next PTA meeting will be held next Wednesday, January 17 at 2:20 in our MPR! Also next week our PTA will be presenting another movie night in our MPR featuring the movie “Despicable Me 3”! Please see below in the PTA section for more information!

OK Panthers, that’s all from me for this edition! Have a wonderful three day weekend!

 

That’s a wrap!
